The Nars Dual Intensity Eye Shadows were one of the most exciting launches of last year (check out my post with swatches here) so when news first broke regarding the arrival of the Nars Dual Intensity Blushes, it’s safe to say I was very excited. There are six colourways available and I’ve been trying out the Adoration Duo.
Each of the Nars Dual Intensity Blushes contain two complimentary blushers that can be worn alone or together, depending on what sort of finish you’re after. The two in Adoration are a strong, red/pink shade and a lighter, pale pink highlighter shade. They work beautifully together so I tend to use both of them at the same time, however, you can easily use the deeper shade as an individual blush or the lighter shade as an all over highlighter.
Both shades are, as you would expect from Nars, finely milled with great colour payoff. They can both be used wet or dry, with the idea being that adding water gives a stronger colour finish, but I haven’t tried these as I think both shades deliver on payoff and I don’t need either of them to be any more vibrant; it’s good to know the option is there though.
Interestingly, some of the other colourways appear to lean more towards contouring and sculpting products, such as Jubiliation and Frenzy, which both contain more bronzey hues. I think that’s the key with these blushers is that, when used together, they can create a multidimensional finish.
I like the Nars Dual Intensity Blushes very much and I’m hoping they’ll add more colours to the range, although for the time being I have my eye on the Panic shade duo. There’s also a Wet/Dry Blush Brush designed for use with these powders. They’re available now at £30 a pop here – link.
